Hey little baby


You came to earth

Just like one of us

A newborn child

You lived your life

Here among us

Like you understood

The blaze of light

The angel's singing

Their goodwill to men 

Guess you must have known you'd change the world


Chorus 1

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Someday there'll be peace 


You spent your days

As the good son

Of a carpender

And in the temple

with scholars

Cause you understood

A prophet's warning

 Of Herod's jelous hate

The Magi and the star

Guess you must have known you'd change 


Our world when you came 

A little baby layed in hay

By a young mother

And your father standing there

 With the shepherds

And their sheep 

Out in the field

Staring at the 

Christmas light display


Chorus 2

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Someday there'll be peace


You said your time 

here among us

Wouldn't be too long

You were sent here to lead us

Cause you understood

The feelings we feel

How to lay it down for a friend

The reason that you came 

Guess you must have known you'd change the world

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Someday there'll be peace

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Hey little baby

Someday there'll be peace


Ending

You came to earth

Just like one of us

A newborn child

(Hey little baby

Hey little baby)

You lived your life

Here among us

Like you understood

(Hey little baby

Hey little baby)
